Chastity is saving all sexually intimate acts for the gift and sacrament of marriage. Though it is often confused with abstinence, chastity is more than saying ‘no’ or simply ‘waiting,’ it is saying yes to the demands of true love and growing into the person you are called to be. This virtue is the happiest and healthiest way to live out our sexuality!
Lust is using another for sexual gratification, while love is desiring the best thing for another person, and knowing they would do the same for us. Love might demand different things in different relationships, but it always brings us closer to the things that matter most. Love requires creativity, patience, joy, growth, and so much more than we can imagine – in the long term, lust is just boring!
The Pro-Life and Chastity messages are for everyone, regardless of creed. Though the messages are tenants of certain faiths, our talks are based in human dignity. We speak to groups from all backgrounds! You do not need to practice a certain religion or belong to a certain faith to uphold the right to life and the sanctity of love.
